Westwood Public Schools Reviews

Westwood is a very small town, so the community is very tight-knit. This is reflected in the schools; everyone knows each other, allowing for strong connections. The teachers in Westwood Public Schools are top-notch, and they always provide enough resources for the students to succeed. This helps the students prepare for college. There is a great range of clubs and activities at the high school that anyone can join so students will always find at least a few clubs they are interested in. While there are many sports teams, some are not very good. On the other hand, most sports make it to the TVL's. It is very easy for parents to be involved, for the school constantly sends emails, updating them about what's going on. It is a mostly white school. It is a very safe environment. There is a no-tolerance bullying policy. There are many different foods available so everyone's diet can be accounted for.

Is going to school really that bad? I don’t think so.

In Westwood, I am always free to make my own choice. I always get to choose what subject I want to study including other things like music, art, or PE, join clubs and make friends with people who have the same hobbies as me.

I still remember having fun, singing, talking and playing games during breaks. Wetwood is full of joy and laughter – something that cannot be found so easily later in life.

I can’t imagine what my life will be like after I leave Westwood. Will my colleagues at work be as caring as my classmates? Will my boss forgive my mistakes like my teachers do? Will I lose my passion for life when I have to go out into the real world?

Westwood provided me a with a good environment in which to grew up, which will make me miss westwood even more after I graduate.
The teachers are super nice and they try to aid students in their courses. However, the classes themselves seem limited and our interests are limited. It is a very athletic school, while a lot of the students try to be involved in performing arts programs. The school definitely needs more funding for its performing arts department due to the massive number of students involved in concerts and musicals.
